... Hi dbgoalie! Thank you for replying! We do have those notes, we call them 'sick notes'! I was given one for a week, but the thing is I am a freelancer/self-employed, so the sick note wouldn't really do anything. My boss is very understanding, but with one of the staff members leaving makes it a little complicated. I think I will talk to him, because at the moment I am... (240 replies)

... Full recovery can take as much as a year. For me the bulk of the healing (75%) took place the first 8-10 weeks. It's the last 25% where your foot will feel completely "normal" again that takes so much time. It's been 2 steps forward 1 step back. I was back in my regular shoe wardrobe (no heels) by the 12-14 week mark. I'm now almost 6 months post op and range between... (6 replies)
... someone at them. I discovered a wonderful orthopedic surgeon after a car accident. I see him privately, as the NHS took to long to refer me. He is a marvel. The bunion surgery was done NHS as it was not urgent, I didn't mind waiting 8 months. I wish I had paid. ... (125 replies)

... I am getting depressed from reading some of your posts about how long it is taking to "fully" recovered. I had surgery on Nov. 15, 2006 which last week I can finally not "use" my crutches when I wake up first thing in the morning. When I get up I walk as if I am 100 years old and I am only 56. ...

... That said, I had a chevron bunionectomy 3 months ago. I dropped the crutches around the house at about week 3 and dropped them completely around week 4. But it was very slow going getting around on the gimpy foot until about week 8. However, lots of people are NWB for much longer. ... (5 replies)
... I, too, had a bunionectomy/titanium implant. I never heard of anyone's doctor using a tourniquet. I am 8 weeks post-op. I had about six stitches on the big toe. It looked really nasty at first. Once the stitches were out and the scabs all came off (about 1 week ago), it didn't look too bad. I have been going to P.T. and they smooth on some kind of salve and massage it... (5 replies)
... Oh emh - I'm sorry to hear that you are in so much pain. I had a severe bunion on my right foot that was operated on Oct 18th so I'm about 3 1/2 weeks post op. I was also given Percoset (Oxycodone) and I can't really say I was in a lot of pain. I know I had the bunion removed, bone in my foot cut and realigned and my second toe shortened (because it became longer than the... (18 replies)
